I have a PS3, a Sylvania HDTV, and a Sony DVD Home Theatre System. I want the Video to go to the TV, and the Audio to come from the sound system. The tv only has one HDMI port, same as the PS3 and the Sound System. I connected the HDMI cable coming from the PS3 to an HDMI splitter, with the two output HDMI cables going to the TV and the Sound System.
The issue is that the splitter seems to only be recognizing the tv. This means that the Audio/video is going directly to the tv, with no audio to the sound system. I tried fooling around with the sound settings on the Playstation Audio Output Settings, but nothing has worked. I'm not looking to settle for diminished Audio quality by using an optical digital cable (connecting the sound system to the tv).
Am I wrong to be using a splitter, and is there anything else I should know in order to make this work?
